Subject: I enjoyed this one because it has ONLY been 2-3 months, so I think Jamie's running from his internal problems by keeping ridiculously busy is spot-on accurate. They didn't spend the months in the Abbey to heal like he did in the books, so this avoidance/denial seems realistic. Part of the appeal of Jamie and Claire's love is that they DO fight through the difficult times. It's clear they still love each other but are struggling to figure out how to connect when their most intimate way of connecting isn't a possibility. These 2-3 episodes are the replacement for that drug-induced battle Claire fought with Jamie. Since they didn't do that, they have to show how the healing happens, and it won't happen quickly. Obviously, I also LOVED Mother Hildegarde, Bouton, and wee Fergus!

[> [> I see your point about Jamie's recovery, but I'm still not liking the words they are putting in his mouth these days. Ah, well, different opinions! On the other hand, I think we can agree that Frances de la Tour as Mother Hildegarde was another example of perfect casting. I saw some whiner on another site complain that she was not as tall as in the books. Who cares? She was exactly how I pictured the matron of l'Hopital. Dignified, filled with inner strength and aware of every breeze that wafts through her domain. It was fascinating to watch her subtle performance-- how she initially assumed Claire was just another bored society lady but began to see that there was much more to Claire than her pretty face and clothes. And all this with barely a word spoken. She was brilliant. And Bouton was spot on! What cute little mutt. -- Shads, 20:43:13 04/24/16 Sun
